I want to buy some Ateco tips, but I have to order online so I won't be able to look at the tips to see the size. Can someone please let me know which tip is best for doing big swirls on cupcakes. I already have the Wilton 1M, but I'd like to get the Ateco ones as well.

I use a 21 or 22 for swirls (the star tips) the bigger the tip, the larger the swirl is going to be.
